Serves 4

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 55 min.


  • 2 links hot Italian-style turkey sausage
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 19-ounce c lentil soup
  • 2 cups individually quick-frozen (IQF) spinach
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup uncooked converted white rice
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 2- to 2 1/2-quart baking dish with cooking spray. Remove casings from sausage and crumble with a fork.

Step 2

Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and onion; cook, stirring, until the onion softens, about 5 minutes. Add soup, spinach and oregano; heat through. Add rice and season with pepper. Transfer to the prepared baking dish; cover with foil. Bake until rice is tender, about 35 minutes. Top with Cheddar and bake uncovered until the cheese is melted, a few minutes longer.
